The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#95~ 10/26/10

For today...

Outside my window...
wind, swaying trees, beautiful leaves blowing all around...we're in a tornado watch right now & anticipating severe weather in the next couple of hours.

I am thinking...of the safety of my family as we're all scattered about, doing our jobs today; I hope we don't lose power during the storm.

I am thankful for...still having a home, that fixing up the clunker car wasn't as expensive as we had feared it would be, for our church home.

From the kitchen...
light lunch, I think I'll try to make some more laundry detergent before the storms hit, just in case we do lose power.

I'm wearing...jeans, pink shirt.

I am remembering...
a funny thing that happened at church on Sunday. :-)

I am going...to work later today.

I am reading...
Bible: Psalms; Of Plymouth Plantation: Bradford's History of the Plymouth Settlement 1608-1650. Timely for Thanksgiving; this is a great read to counter all the revisionist lies most have been taught in public schools about how the Pilgrims treated the Indians so badly...NOT true! It's always better to get your info from someone who was there.

I am hoping...
that the storms won't be as bad as the weather men think. And, of course, for an awesome job for my DH.

On my mind...
waiting expectantly on sweet answers to prayers.

I am creating...a peaceful, Christ-centered home.

I am hearing...the radio, leaves being carried by the wind & swooshing past my window. Powerful & wonderful.

Noticing that...the last of our beautiful maple trees seemed to have exploded in fall color almost over-night.

Pondering these words...Do I read the Bible for 'head knowledge' or 'heart knowledge'? Do I treat the Bible like it's a game of Bible Trivia or allow it to transform me? ~~Paraphrased from Sunday's sermon.

Around the house...looking forward to painting a couple of rooms.

One of my favorite things...
that my girls were privileged to have known one of their great-grandmothers. My grandparents, on both sides, were so much older & their parents were long gone by the time I came along.

Scripture thought...Matt 7:24-25
~ [Jesus speaking] "Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine & puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, & the winds blew & beat
against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." ~~If my faith is built on the foundation of God's Word, then I CAN face tomorrow!!! And so can you!

Plans for the week...
family time, work, helping to lead worship at a women's retreat this weekend! I'm SO excited...it's at my favorite retreat center. Lots of great fellowship, fun activities & a hayride & bonfire!

Here is a picture thought I'm sharing with you...

Ahhh...one of my happy places. :-) Wouldn't you just love to go there? Sometimes I use this as a screen saver on my PC.

  1. This is my post reading day and all the ones I have been reading have brought back feelings of nostalgia. Perhaps it's the change in weather. I'll pray that the Tornado will not be near your home and family. I have a daughter who just moved from Omaha, Nebraska to Missouri; so she experiences these all the time. She used to live in Corpus Christi, Texas so we then worried about the hurricanes. She has such faith and it doesn't ever seem to concern her.
    I too have faith and know that all will be well. Thanks for sharing your scriptures; I always enjoy them. It is important to build our homes upon the rock; so that we can withhold against the storms of life. Enjoy the moments of the retreat; I have enjoyed some of these events in my church too.
    Blessings and hugs to you today! LeAnn
